World Do You Know…???

That Jesus paid the ultimate price for me through blood, sweat and pain in in the hill of Calvary on top that CROSS. 

World What Do you See..???

Do you see a beautiful face, a beautiful body, a degree, pedigree, wealth, religion, sex, addictions or much more….. My Jesus saw all of that and he still died on that cross, still the cup was passed through him for him to fulfill what was written and proclaimed.

Reader What Do You See..???

Do you see the words flowing together… Do you see the theological and Spiritual side coming down together… What do you really see??? Sometimes the blind leads the blind and that brings a bunch of problems in your walk with God. Maybe the church as a whole member should focus on the homeless, the sick, the abused and on people needing help from any other circumstance then who has the bigger church, the newest car, phone, clothes, hairstyle… whose worship group is going big… Pastor’s and ministers with multi million dollar houses… what a hypocrisy; after all didn’t Jesus ask of the rich young ruler to give everything away to the ones in need and to follow him.(Mark 10:17-27)

Isaiah 40:7-8

The grass withers, the flower fades
    when the breath of the Lord blows on it;
    surely the people are grass.
The grass withers, the flower fades,
    but the word of our God will stand forever.

The church has become a joke a way to get rich and famous; then to truly live the lifestyle of the Lord. I don’t say it because I’m envious of you but because it’s time that we wake up to the reality that we are living in. How can people truly come to Jesus when we don’t give testimony of the change within us. Sometimes change happens in the inside first then the outside or sometimes it happens on the outside then the inside… but if JESUS CHRIST freed us from the slavery of sin; there has to be a radical change because he doesn’t do things by half a measure. 

All those against Him will fall
For our God is stronger
He can do all things
No higher name we can call
For Jesus is greater
We can do all things 

/ Bethel/ We will not be Shaken

John 3:3

“Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.””
‭‭

Hello everyone I hope that you had a beautiful and blessed thanksgiving with family, friends or with members of the church. Our Thanksgiving was done at church so that people that had no family were able to come and pass that beautiful celebration together as family in Christ.

On today’s post I wanted to talk about been reborn again. Do you know that chapter in the bible where Jesus is talking to Nicodemus the priest. Where he asks the famous question…..

 “How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born again?“( John 3:4)

When I first heard a pastor preaching in this chapter I got that look in my face where you are thinking to your self ” Oh My Goodness, is that even possible???” and yes my intelligence came to a sudden stop; I was in that moment being Nicodemus with my really dumb question. However when you think about it; it’s a reasonable question I mean this guy( Jesus) was lifting up dead people, curing sickness, delivering people, and he was proclaiming to be the Son of God( which now we know is the complete and utter truth) but back then people were seeing all of this and they had questions like this. But what took me back was what Jesus responded after Nicodemus ask him another question.

John 3:10

“Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?”

Seriously I don’t if you guys hear the sarcasm in the way Jesus responded to that. I mean maybe it’s my imagination but every time that I read this chapter it just makes me laugh because I feel like I’m hearing Jesus saying that to him sarcastically. I might be wrong but anyways the way Jesus responded is everything. I mean we have a high priest with a curiosity problem; asking the Messiah to explain how he can do all that he does. And even though Jesus answered him; he still couldn’t understand what the Lord what’s trying to tell him. Him being a priest he should have some kind of knowledge or wisdom I would dare to say; however he was behaving as a common person. In that time that Jesus walked on earth the high priests of were men obnoxious, prideful, greedy and really hypocrites.

John 3: 5-7

“Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6.That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7.Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Jesus wasn’t speaking of a physical rebirth as if it were Greek mythology but as a spiritual one.  If your spirit is tied with hatred, shame, guilt, cruelty, mercilessness, anger, rebellion; how then are you suppose to have a connection with God. God is love, mercy, love, grace, forgiveness; he is the complete opposite of us humans. Yesterday my brother came over to the house with his family and the cutest thing was with them(talking about this cutie pie in the picture) he was playing around; laughing and at one moment he got mad with his mom because he want to spin in a chair but his mom wouldn’t let him; because he could have injured himself. However after he got over the anger not even 3 minutes later; he went to his mom and gave her a kiss and hug. Children have this huge capacity for love and forgiveness, why don’t we the older generation have that.

We are quick to anger and hold fast to hatred. Maybe life has treated us horribly and we might have scars and wounds in our bodies, soul and mind. But when we come to Jesus we are suppose to be like a child because if we do not have that attributes that many children have we are not going anywhere. A child has not hatred, they don’t discriminate between race, ethnicity, religion, sex , political views. We definitive need to be reborn again in the spiritual image that God’s wants us to.

Luke 18:17

“Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.””

Through the eyes of God💕💕🗣🗣🗣🌎🌎🌎

Hello,

Today’s blog post we are going to be talking about impact. On Saturday afternoon the youth had an activity at church. We watched a christian movie called To Save a Life; I remember watching this movie on my teenage years with the other youth group that I was involved with. This movie has a strong message about actions, consequences and the impact that you can have on someone’s life as other teenage topics that need to be spoken  about at church.

To Save a Life is a movie about a young man with big dreams  but all those dreams come to a stop when his childhood friend commits suicide in front of the school; and he starts to question his lifestyle choices. This movie speaks to the rebellious teen, alcoholic, depressed, suicidal, promiscuous and to the fake(hypocrite) christian inside of us. A lot of Christians are fake nowadays and I include myself in that list. We put so much high standards that at the end those standards choke us. Moments when we don’t allow weakness to show because we are afraid to be criticize by our own brethren, by outsiders and we keep walking as nothing has happened in our lives or as if we are made of stone that nothing can move us.

Luke 12:2

There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.

 It says in the bible that by his blood we are freed of sin but instead of being slaves of God by our own free will we have become slaves of our flesh. Life is so beautiful with all of it flaws but we don’t notice because we have become slaved by our wants and desires. I tried to show the teens through this movie that every action that we do or take has consequences and that the impact that we can do as Christians can be an amazing one or just completely wrong. They learned that through the mist of trials and tribulation, joy and fear God is there beside you. Through what was happening to  the teen they were able to see God’s hand and his immense Love toward us.

Life is not black or white it has a middle space that is gray. They were able to see that even though you can’t see God or feel his physically; you are able to see his work in your life, family and friends. That bad influences or friends can corrupt good morals. That God is the only one that won’t forsake you; that an action can create a chain reaction that will glorify the Lord. One teen gave a testimony and he said that when he was living in California the youth he was part of saw the movie and they decided to create a christian group in school and to eat all together in school during lunch and he tells that many youth that didn’t know Christ were able to come to his path through that action.

Psalm 138: 7-8

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me. The LORD will accomplish what concerns me; Your loving kindness, O LORD, is everlasting; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.

We as christian have the opportunity to create a big impact on this earth and the lives of it’s inhabitants. Jesus gave a commandment before parting from this world that we make disciples of the people living in it but have really done that.? It’s a question that we need to ask daily to ourselves.

Shalom💕💕💕🗣🗣🗣
